Welcome to the first new’s letter for our website. First let us introduce ourselves. We are the steering committee that will be formulating, the soon to be, Gander Airport Historical Society.

Through this website we intend to form a Board of Directors and open up this Society for membership in the next coming months. An executive will be elected from the Board. Those interested in becoming a Director on the Board are invited to apply through our website email.
We ask you to assist us with this website through suggestions and recommendations in our Guest Book or via email. Also we welcome your photographic or any personal written documents of an historical nature that you might wish to contribute.
A future project that we hope to achieve is to have a model constructed of the old airport as it was in the early 50's, depicting all the streets and buildings as they we laid out around the runways. It is not expected to take on this challenge until we have the GAHS well established.
Your interest is appreciated.
